Teaching Profession

The need for competent teachers who can provide relevant education besides the need for trained teachers in general continues to be acute as evidenced by the fact that in 1999, only 63 percent of primary school teachers were formally trained.

In 2001 there were approximately 1,814 female and 1,086 male teachers serving the nation.
